When I first used the services I will mention below, I never had someone give me a discount code or referral code which would have saved me some money. I’d like you to not miss out on that so I’m listing them all here.
I personally use these services and I vouch for their quality. Please be forewarned that, in return, I will be receiving a little gift from some of these referrals. Just click on the service title to get the code!
Siteground’s services are amazing! I tried Zoom, GoDaddy, and iPage before and they couldn’t compare to the reliability, ease of use and price offered by Siteground. If you run a medium to a high-traffic website, though, be warned that you need to optimize your website to avoid running out of daily CPU seconds. I optimized my website’s heartbeat in order to avoid exceeding the limit and chose the right plan for me.
- StartUp: Suitable for up to10,000 visits per month
- GrowBig: Suitable for up to 25,000 visits per month
- GoGeek: Suitable for up to 100,000 visits per month
Also, one of the best things about Siteground is that they offer free SSL certificate, and an in-house caching technology, SuperCacher, that helps load your website fast (among others).
At this point, AirBNB already speaks for itself and they’re practically almost everywhere in the world. To help you out on your first rental, here’s a ₱1,100 (approx. 10 USD) discount! If you want to read more about my experience with AirBnB, I wrote another article here.
I’m now living in Japan as a Master’s Degree student and I work part-time to finance some of my needs. I still have, however, a credit card from back home that I need to pay off. To transfer money from Japan to Philippines (or any parts of the world), I recommend TransferWise. When you sign up to TransferWise using the link above, they’ll get a free transfer of up to £500. The best thing about Transferwise is that you can do the transfer online and just deposit to a local bank account. The registration is hassle free and the upfront fee is CHEAP compared to western union or bank to bank transfers. Moreover, the exchange rate is one of the best.
Add them on Line and get a free Inari sushi the first time (please take note of the coupon’s validity). Every 10th, 20th and 30th of the month, you also get one free tempura to go with an udon of your choice. I love this shop for the noodles. I love them more for the freebies! <3
Get a 2000 yen coupon when you register for their point card and add them on Line. I love this shop because they sell everything from clothes, accessories, cosmetics (Clinique – my fave because it GETS my Filipina skintone), and jewelries. I’m using this coupon to buy my Clinique Even Better City Block Pollution 40. <3
Craving for good ol’ pizza, Domino’s offer delivery and discounts for pick up. If you register online, you get 1000 yen off for a minimum order of 2000 yen!
Living in Japan doesn’t need to be expensive. This site gives you a list of coupons for a specific area! The discounts might not be substantial but every yen counts!
Pretty much like the groupons of Japan. Sites are in Japanese so use Chrome to translate automatically.
Here’s some more reason to love Amazon Japan.
Download the Uniqlo app, register, and show your barcode in a Uniqlo store. The attendant will give you a survey (most likely in Japanese) and use google translate for that. You can get any Uniqlo of your choice. Students, go directly to Try 2.
I’ll add more here as I go. 😉
Happy Wise Spending!
